During this period, pregnant mothers should carefully observe their physical conditions, and should also exercise moderately. Keep the same posture over time, otherwise it may be unfavorable to production, so pregnant mothers need to pay more attention to more matters. 

Why is the perinatal period a watershed? 

★The situation of the fetus

The fetus has developed to 28 weeks, and all organs of the body are basically complete, with sound limbs and complete physique. At this time, even if an accident occurs, the baby can survive. However, being born at this time is often referred to as premature birth. 

28 weeks is the junction between the second trimester and the third trimester. Before that, the fetus is small and can freely change its posture in the pregnant mother’s belly; but after this, the fetus will be in a stage of rapid growth, especially in physical aspects. The changes are great, the range of motion in the belly of pregnant mothers becomes smaller, and the fetal position will basically be fixed. 

Therefore, during this period, pregnant mothers are required to pay attention to the body so that the baby can be born safely and healthily. 

★Pregnant mother’s situation

After 28 weeks, the pregnant mother begins to enter the third trimester of pregnancy, the fetus is fully developed, the pregnant mother’s belly becomes larger, and the weight that the abdomen needs to bear is also As it increases, the center of gravity will become unstable when the body unintentionally leans forward. 

During this period, pregnant mothers are inconvenient to move, whether they are sleeping or lying down, the pressure will increase. It is best to sleep on the side, which is better for the development of the fetus, and the body burden is lighter. Do not do strenuous exercise. Relatives and friends should also focus on the status of pregnant mothers. 

Matters needing attention during the perinatal period

►Prepare for childbirth in advance

After entering the perinatal period, the pregnant mother can prepare some items needed for childbirth, and the baby’s The clothes and supplies are cleaned, organized and packed in a delivery bag to ensure that they can be carried to the hospital for production at any time. 

►Pregnancy check-up on time

Although the fetus has grown up after entering the perinatal period, and has gradually improved various physical skills, it can completely survive, but it is not really peaceful . 

The size of the fetus, whether the fetal position is normal, whether the delivery conditions are met, etc., are all things that pregnant mothers need to care about. Therefore, there must be no fewer necessary pregnancy tests to ensure the safety of the pregnant woman and the fetus. 

►Ensure adequate nutrient intake

Entering the perinatal period, the pregnant mother’s body has become heavier and her weight has reached an unprecedented height, but even so, it cannot be Body control diet, on the contrary, the more at this time, the more you must ensure adequate intake of nutrients. 

At this time, not only the fetus needs nutrition, but the pregnant mother also needs to protect her own health in order to make the delivery go smoothly. 

►Walk appropriately and adjust your mood.

Pregnant mothers in the perinatal period not only suffer physical torture, but also tend to get nervous mentally. At this time, pregnant mothers need to listen to music and adjust themselves. In addition, taking a proper walk, not easy to gain weight, is also helpful for production. 

Entering the perinatal period, which manifestations indicate that the fetus has signs of premature delivery

After 28 weeks of pregnancy, if the pregnant mother does not pay attention, it is often easy to cause premature delivery of the fetus. When the pregnant mother has the following 3 manifestations, it means there are Signs of premature birth. 

First of all, the pregnant mother will suddenly feel unbearable pain in the lower abdomen. At this time, she should be sent to the hospital for examination immediately and follow the doctor’s arrangement. 

The second is the reduction of fetal movement. The fetal development entering the perinatal period is basically completed. Under normal circumstances, the fetal movement during the day is about 30 times. If the fetal movement is less than 20 times in 12 hours, it is likely to be “deficiency”. It’s necessary to go to the hospital for medical treatment as soon as possible. 

Finally, there is an increase in “secretions”. In theory, the fetus will only “into the basin” after 9 months of pregnancy. At the same time, irregular uterine contractions will also increase significantly. However, if you enter the perinatal period, “secretions” Sudden increase in the number of things, it is very likely that the fetus is early, and you need to go to the hospital for medical treatment as soon as possible.  If the child is full, he will send out these This signal, Baoma had better stop, so as not to “overfeed”

Overfeeding means that the baby eats too much food in the stomach, which exceeds the capacity of his stomach, which causes indigestion.

If you want your child to thrive, you need adequate nutrition, especially the newborn baby, most of them It is through breast milk to get nutrients. 

But some novice mothers don’t know how to grasp the degree, worrying that the baby will not have enough to eat, which will affect the development, so they can’t help feeding more, but in fact, feeding too much is the same as feeding less. It is not conducive to the growth and development of the baby.

In fact, if the baby is full, although it cannot be expressed in words, it can send out “signals” from some details. Therefore, if you want to judge whether your baby is full or not, you can start from three aspects. 

Signs that your baby is full

1. Start to be distracted while feeding.

For newborns, eating is a very important thing, especially for newborn babies, all day long. Except eating is sleeping. 

Therefore, every time they eat milk, they tend to be very attentive. Once someone refuses to let him eat, they will cry, but if they are full, they will be easily divided by other things. My heart, when I heard the sound, I turned my head to look because of curiosity. Although I was still biting on the pacifier, I obviously didn’t take milk seriously anymore. Even if my mother stopped breastfeeding, they would not cry too much. 

At this time, mother needs to observe carefully and judge whether the baby is full from the level of concentration of the baby, and the baby’s inattention is a signal that the baby is full. 

2. Sucking intermittently

In many months, babies who are younger don’t have much energy to care about what’s happening around them. When breastfeeding, they may fall asleep while eating. During this period, I will take a few mouthfuls reflexively, and then continue to sleep. 

Probably many mothers think that the baby is not full, but in fact, when the baby sucks and sucks intermittently, it means that the baby is full. 

During this time period, the baby’s sleepiness is more obvious than breastfeeding, occupying a major position, so Baoma no longer needs to feed. 

In addition, when the baby is still calling the nipple while sleeping, it is easy to cause choking if he is not careful. Therefore, the mother needs to comfort the baby to fall asleep as soon as possible. 

3. Biting while drinking breastmilk

In fact, in the case of breastfeeding, if the child is full, Baoma can often receive a more obvious signal. 

When the baby’s month is a little older, the baby teeth begin to grow out, and the roots of the teeth often feel itchy. After eating, they will subconsciously take a bite. At this time, Baoma doesn’t need to feed anymore. 

Baby’s gums will be more uncomfortable during teething, and the roots of deciduous teeth will be very itchy. They like to bite or ask for something to relieve them. Therefore, mothers can buy some teeth sticks or massage the baby with her fingers. Gum, so as to relieve the baby’s discomfort during teething. 

What are the effects of overfeeding? 

Traditional overfeeding refers to a syndrome mainly caused by indigestion caused by excessive milk intake. 

➀Symptoms of overfeeding:

Watery stools

Baby eats too much milk, and stools are often foamy and green. 


Hiccups will not relieve the baby’s symptoms of vomiting. 

abdominal pain

Baby crying because of abdominal pain or flatulence. 

Weight change

Baby does not gain weight or loses weight. 

➁The hazards of overfeeding:

Digestive disorders

Overfeeding will increase the burden on the baby’s digestive organs and cause digestion and absorption. 

causing brain fatigue

In order to digest a large amount of food, the digestive tract expands, and limited blood and oxygen are transferred from the head to the digestive tract, and brain cells are temporarily ischemic. Therefore, the more the baby eats, the more blood the gastrointestinal needs , The blood supply to the brain decreases accordingly, and the harm to the brain is self-evident. 


If protein intake is too much, muscle and fat will also accumulate, resulting in obesity. Even sometimes, this childhood habit will extend to later life, which is not conducive to the future of the baby. Growth and development. 

Case: The baby often vomits milk, and the novice mother is very worried.

Xiaolian’s baby is 3 months old. When breastfeeding, he can eat for half an hour. I thought that the baby needs nourishment and is hungry fast. After eating, she often vomited milk again. The mother-in-law said it was because of the excessive eating, but Xiao Lian was puzzled. Could the child not notice that she was full? 

In fact, although the baby will not take the initiative to say that he is full, he will also use other more obscure actions to suggest that he is full, but in many cases, Bao’s mother herself does not notice it. 

Many parents always think about letting their babies eat more so that they can get enough nutrition. As long as the children don’t refuse, they will keep feeding. But in fact, this approach is wrong. It not only affects the child’s natural growth pattern, but also produces various health aspects. The problem. 

A question today: What will your baby behave when he is full?
